Happy 4th!

July 4, 2010

“Youth and the sea. Glamor and the sea! The good, strong sea, the salt, bitter sea, that could whisper to you and roar at you and knock the breath out of you” – J. Conrad

The sun never completely disappeared. There was a line of pink in the sky all night.

We found a protozoan jellyfish hanging like a teardrop from the CTD. Later, in the MOCNESS, we caught a lamprey. It was absolutely prehistoric looking – a jawless fish that looked like a worm with rows and rows of teeth in it’s mouth. One of the scientists picked it up and it clung to his hand like an over-sized leech.

I hope something exciting happens for the 4th! I haven’t heard about anything happening … my plan was to drink a Diet Coke in celebration. I was hoping there would be fireworks or expired flares or something but it is seeming unlikely.

We saw a ship on the horizon yesterday. First time there’s been a bump in the horizon for a while.

We had a deep CTD cast so I played Tik Tok by Kesha over the sound system. Everyone loved it.
